EU sources -Europe’s Americanisation of labour policy -December 14, 2013

The New York Times describes how many European countries - especially those in southern Europe that have been tormented by the financial crisis - have been furiously dismantling workplace protections in a bid to reduce the cost of labour. The journal signals that the austerity policy has radically changed the nature of Europe’s society with widening inequality and an unheralded erosion of worker protection that is likely to have a big and lasting impact on Europe’s labour relations.
